Almost talked myself out of giving this one a 10, but it was just too damn funny. The courtroom scene alone was just a delightful farce, and I enjoyed everything from Melchit's blustering and blubbering in his kangaroo court, to George's foolhardy, dimwitted confidence, to Baldrick's constant negation, to Blackadder's usual sarcastic remarks. The jovial firing squad was a hoot, and George and Baldrick's frantic attempts to remember who they need to send a telegram to was uproariously funny. Fry and Laurie were at their best in the episode, and the rest of the crew were no slouches themselves. Hell of an episode that kept me laughing almost the whole time.
